Lise joins Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic in Bergen’s City Square on 18 August 2017 for a free open air concert centred on the works of Grieg. The concert also marks the beginning of Lise’s season as the orchestra’s Artist in Residence, during which she gives performances of Wagner, Sibelius and Verdi alongside recitals with James Baillieu. She also joins Gardner and the orchestra for a recording session for Chandos in May 2018.
Lise then travels to Ireland for the Wexford Opera Festival, where she sings the title role of Cherubini Medea from 19 October. Elsewhere this season she also makes her debut at Wiener Staatsoper in the title role of Ariadne auf Naxos and performs in concert with the Oslo Philharmonic.
